A Big GuitarAboutA Big Guitar got its start in the mid 90s primarily with rock.
However, as time progressed, A Big Guitar began to explore various genres.
ABG is primarily influenced by rock and composes primarily with rock (usually instrumentals).
Sometimes ABG breaks genres by mixing them together such as rock and symphonic or rap beats and rock. Not all tracks contain guitar work.
Most songs do contain guitar work, however.
Don't be surprised to hear songs containing only orchestral or electronic arrangements, though.MembersBrian WrightInfluencesABG is influenced by many different artists and music.
The guitar work is influenced Vai, Satch, VH, and various other in this style.
Composition is most influenced by Mike Oldfield and various other composers and bands.ComposingToo much commercial music today is driven by beat,
heavy driving one chord guitar work or by
short bleeps and blips of a synth.
Little thought is placed on musical composition in in today's mainstream music. Even still, ABG is compositionally influenced by everything from pop to orchestral arrangements.
in any ABG composition, however, is always on the melody no matter the instrument used
to execute it or the beats involved.
ABG's main influence in compositions, however, derives from a combination of Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen and Mike Oldfield with a sprinkling of Pink Floyd thrown in occasionally.GearGuitars: Line 6 Variax Acoustic 700 and Electric 300, Charvel strat-type guitar
